Rowenta iron - Electrical cord protector at base of iron is split - needs repair or replacement

Hello. The rubber section that fits over the base of the electrical cord and connects to the iron has split in half. There are little sharp spikes that are now exposed and rub against the electrical cord. This looks to be a hazard waiting to happen - eventually puncturing the electrical cord. Repair or replace? And where? I tried to reconnect the other half of the rubber protector to the half still connected to the base by using duct tape. It won't stay in place and keep the loose rubber end from separating again. Thank you so much!

SOURCE: Rowenta Steam Iron Leak

Yes, my rowenta model DX6700 is also leaking from the heal. I bought this iron after having a GE for ten years because I thought it would iron my clothes better. I've had it less than two years. How frustrating!!!!!!

SOURCE: need to know how to clean a rowenta iron plate

As long as it's not a coated surface - plain steel - get 0000 steelwool to rub it with. It will take some elbow grease but it will work to clean and (almost) polish the surface.

SOURCE: Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta

Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

Rowenta iron dg3050 iron potion broken and will not hold steam can you replace the iron part


More than likely your steam valve is broken or stuck. I had one of these and they are worth having repaired. Google Rowenta Repair Center.

We have a Rowenta iron effective model DX1700, less than a year old. It will not heat. Is there an iron made that will give satisfactory service for more than a year? Are they repairable?


If the cord and plug are ok (the wires in the cord often break just at the cord protector at the iron) the most likely other problems will be the thermal fuse(s) or the element. Thermal fuses can be replaced but if the element is gone that is unfortunately that. Take the back cover off and check for continuity from the plug to the inside connections using a test light or multimeter (the iron is of course unplugged).

Power cord on rowenta dm991 is split- needs a new one- can I do this myself?


On the end of the iron there are 2 screws - remove them; on the bottom of the end there is a small slot - put a small screw driver in the slot and pull on the end; you will find the wire that goes into the iron - get a replacement from an iron shop and you are good to go!

My rowenta stopped heating , mid-shirt!!......now it seems dead and wont heat at all !.........thanks !!!


The most likely cause is a broken wire in the cord. Replacement should only be done by a qualified electrical appliance repairer. Ask for a quote as it may be cheaper to buy a new iron!

The electrical cord is seperating from the base of the iron and exposing the cord. The plastic covering is in parts. Can this be repaired?


You can repair this yourself but you will have to take the handle apart to access the power cord inside the handle. Just pull the cord inside and wrap with electrical tape to hold in place. Hope this helps

My Rowenta Professional will not come on.


Yes, there is a broken wire inside of the cord. This is a potentially dangerous situation for you as it could result in a deadly shock or a fire. The cord can be replaced for about $25.00 at a repair shop. Therefore, it may be more logical to trash this iron and get a new one.

Either way, good luck.
